AIA, SMU work-study programme gives head start to actuarial science students

AIA Singapore and SMU have teamed up to launch a work-study elective programme, aimed at providing actuarial science students with on-the-job training experiences. AIA and SMU signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to formalise their first collaboration. The partnership will allow students from the university’s School of Economics to undergo a 20-week apprenticeship. Dean of SMU School of Economics Professor Hoon Hian Teck said, “Our curriculum constantly seeks to blend theory with the real world… The opportunity to glean insights from AIA leaders and professionals during the programme will stand our graduates in good stead to thrive in their future careers in the actuarial field.”
